Disabled screensaver, no output to monitor


My system is running FC3.

The screensaver was set to disable via the gnome gui. Now, I get no display to the monitor during/after a reboot. Unfortunately the screensaver is working. By typing blindly, I can log, but the screen remains blank.

In the /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver file
! Default to blanking the screen
*mode: blank

Not sure if this needs to be changed to something else.
Any help would be appreciated
Mary Ellen
